First qurter records number of tourists in Belgrade

-

A city’s official said on Tuesday that 19 percent more tourists visited Serbia’s capital in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the same period last year.

Nikola Nikodijevic, the head of the Belgrade’s Parliament said the tourism in the capital grew faster than expected.

“The 19 percent increase compared to 2017, when we had a million visitors and two million overnights, shows that tourism in Belgrade has become the fastest growing part of the economy,” a statement from the City Hall quoted him as saying.

He added that there was also an accompanying number of new capacities, saying that only last week, the City’s authorities received 56 applications for categorisation of new private accommodation.

Nikodijevic said that for the first time, organised group of tourists from China have come to Belgrade, while those from the region, Western Europe and Turkey have become regular guests.

“We are very proud for becoming the tourist capital of the Southeastern Europe and for our city’s tourism growing faster than expected,” he said.
